Derek Chisora and David Haye split after two-and-a-half-year partnership as boxer thanks old rival for his support

, Derek Chisora and David Haye split after two-and-a-half-year partnership as boxer thanks old rival for his support

DEREK CHISORA has split from coach and former boxing world champion David Haye.

The two have been working together for two-and-a-half years, but that partnership has come to an end.

David Haye will no longer be Derek Chisora’s coach after the pair called time on their partnership

Chisora has lost his last two fights – against Oleksandr Usyk and Joseph Parker.

The latter was contentious, with many believing ‘War’ should have got the decision against the Kiwi.

The two heavyweights signalled their intentions after the dust-up for a rematch later this year.

Speaking about the split, Haye said: “It’s been an action-packed couple of years, getting Derek back in the mix of the heavyweight division, taking him from ‘Delboy’ to ‘WAR’ mode.

“When we announced our unlikely partnership we pledged to give fight fans the big nights of heavyweight clashes they have called out for and that I believe we have achieved.

“Whilst I will no longer be managing Derek, I will naturally continue to follow and support his career with great interest.

“The UK remains at the epicentre of the heavyweight division and Derek stands ready to go toe to toe with them all. 2021 is looking very exciting for him with a number of options available.”

And Chisora added: “Everyone close to me thought I was crazy when I told them I wanted David to manage me, but in the last two and a half years my performances in the ring have spoken for themselves.

“Giving fights fans the battles they wanted to see even when Covid put a handbrake on everything. I may have been robbed against both Usyk and Parker but have developed as a fighter.

“[The year] 2021 is looking very interesting, I am back in camp, ready to go this Autumn. It’s time for WAR. I would like to thank David for his support (at times patience…) and guidance during our time working together.”
